NEXTLAB Internships

The mission of ACU’s NEXT Lab is to provide global solutions to the world’s need for energy, water and medical isotopes by advancing the technology of molten salt reactors while educating future leaders in nuclear science and engineering.

NEXT hires students three times a year: for the fall and spring semesters, where students can work up to 25 hours a week, and in the summer, where students work as full-time NEXT interns. Our hiring cycles typically follow this basic shedule:

  • For fall work, apply in August
  • For spring work, apply by mid-November
  • For summer work, apply by mid-February

We are always looking for the best and the brightest students, especially those with engineering, physics, chemistry, math, and computer science majors. You are invited to apply to work with us at any time, and your application will be kept on file until the next hiring cycle.
